Personally I like the silver one... just looks classy to me, but either would be a great looking bike.

I vote for the silver as well, the orange looks too much like someone can't afford a rice rocket with tinted windows and $5,000 stereo pumping out Hip Hop compensating for the lack of a $50 muffler....

It should be obvious what color a guy with the handle "SilverSurfR" is going to tell you.

I'm not a huge fan of silver, but in this case I'd buy the silver bike. I think it looks much better than the orange bike.

Yeah. The guy had a green one there. It was bad ass but the one I like is only available in orange or silver. I think im going with the silver. Time to start sheding some pounds. Also, what is a good bike rack. I have a black car and I dont want to screw the paint up. So whats a good one?

Just get the one that YOU like.

I had a brushed silver Giant Rainier the last couple years. One day I had to go.......well, you know.....in the woods Anyway, I stashed the bike in the weeds and when I came back, I could not find my bike Not a problem with the new color choice.



I started on stealthy looking black and elegant silver bikes, but my taste has changed.
